Jedward are out but deadwood remains

Cranmer cannot recall the last time the Conservative Party had its act together so swiftly, with such deftness, panache, creativity, flair and intuition for the trivial obsessions and the shallow mood of the nation...

Childish and moronic, it gets right to the heart and soul of the nation. Based on 47 years of observation I would confidently suggest this will clinch it for you. So this is the result of the one to one meeting with Cameron and Cowel. If it wasn't so desperately sad it would be mildly amusing.

Fret Not Your Grace. The proles to whom this ad is directed don't vote anyway.

If his Lordship knew I was posting this......

I am thinking, why is it that we rely on the Tories to get us out of the mess labour created.

I think labour could win-the fact that interest rates are so low means that a 1400 a month mortgage is now 280 a month. Add to this the VAT cut and a possible stimulus in the pre-budget report......

And it would be labour who has to deal with the consequences in 2010; bankrupt britain, high taxes and general misery. Why should the tories win an election which means they will loose in 2015,2020 and 2025? Let the socialists win and stew in a juice of their own making.

Then in 2015, we might finally be able to convince the voters that they are the incapable of governing this country and make sure the tories win by a landslide?

My good Twelvetrees - It is often true that he sows the wind shall reap the whirlwind but not in politics.

As each disastrous Labour administration departs it is left the the Tories to attempt difficult repair.

If not the Tories in 2010, by 2015 any repair will have become impossible. At that time we may see a dictatorship, a military coup or a Committee for Public Safety.

Your proposal is a high stakes gamble. The socialists could stew us the in a juice of their own making.

Given the leftist appetite for control, social engineering and Political Correctness, by 2015 you might find there is only one party to vote for because you are living in a one party State.

Another point that you may have missed is that if NuLab is defeated next year, previous form indicates that the party will split into bickering factions (vide 1980)

Twelvetrees is incorrect and in need of Union membership (Trustee Workers Amalgamated Trades or the TWAT Union should do the trick).

Oh what a glimpse of false consciousness amongst the working classes. Thanks to this government we have ended boom and bust, have pushed a proper equality agenda and will make sure that power, wealth and opportunity are in the hands of the many, not the few.

Those democratic values have guided us through twelve years in government: everything from the large canvas of economic stability, full employment and record investment in public services, to the fine detail of the minimum wage, free museum entry and civil partnerships.

Twelvetrees has clearly been brainwashed by his employer. This is why we need the labour party- to fight for working class rights. I hope he is paying you the minimum wage ?

Is Twelvetrees an illegal immigrant? Lot's of SW1 postcodes employee non-UK residents to their households.

We should never forget one thing - that every single blow we have struck for fairness and for the future has been opposed by the Conservatives.

And just think where our country would be if we'd listened to them.

No paternity leave, no New Deal, no bank of England independence, no Sure Start, no devolution, no civil partnerships, no minimum wage, no new investment in the NHS, no new nurses, no new police, no new schools.

And so let's hear no more from the Conservatives - we did fix the roof while the sun was shining.

This was particularly deft, I must say. However the cynic in me imagines that this has been sat on ice for many weeks, waiting for the day that Deadwood were voted out and whereupon this advert would become relevant...

But this doesn't detract from the poignancy, so well done to CCHQ.

So swiftly they managed to come out with this a mere two weeks after Labour produced a near identical poster. His grace seems easily impressed.

Tit for tat, childish and a bit silly.

But isnt that what the x-factor is about and this is in line with it.

Alan Sugar politics.

This is no time for a novice to take over as prime minister.

I think the problem is that Brown and co are determined to leave whatever government takes over in 2010 with an ungovernable mess.
They are perusing a scorched earth strategy, which is aimed at frustrating the conservative party. Brown no longer even pretends to govern in the national interest. What a contrast to another unpopular labour Prime Minister (Callaghan) or even a Tory one (Major) who knew they were beaten, but were not tempted with pre-election giveaways which we are being led to believe brown will make and instead did their best to keep public deficits under control. Brown will go down, I think, as not only the worst Prime Minister ever, but also as the one who bankrupt Britain.

If Labour wsins and continues its open-door policy our country will forfeit any claim to be a Christian country and even a liberal democracy!

This poster will be treated with derision by anyone with an IQ of over 85.

As will the Labour equivalent, which is equally crass.

Neither party can think much of our intellectual or cultural levels to treat us to this drivel.
